Default New Hire Training Footprint - Standing By

Curious how much notice is usually provided when standing by for a New Hire Class?

Also, what is the usual New Hire Training Footprint and Timeline? (Indoc, Systems, Simulator and IOE).

Thanks!

I've seen poolies show up on day one of a class they'd like to be in, and get a seat when somebody no-shows (probably pretty common these days).

Provided you don't need extra sims; your first day to your first trip on IOE should be about 7 weeks. CRJ side of course.

I went through 4 years ago, so your results may vary, but...

Indoc:6 class days (1 week + 1 day)
Systems: 13 class days.
So basically you start on, say, Monday the 1st. You finish Systems on Thursday the 25th.

Then a break before FTD/Sims. This can be 12 hours. It can be 12 days. In my case it was 6 weeks.

FTD/Sims will take about 4 weeks depending on sim availability. I got mine done in 3.

Then expect to wait anywhere from a couple days to a few weeks for IOE. This usually takes two 3-day trips to complete.

So if you started say Oct 1, that means you'd finish ground by late October, spend November in Sims, and be done with IOE by mid-December, assuming no big delays..

Turbo,

I donít think your profile is still current. From what Iíve loosely heard is thereís 6 days of indoc then a few days of systems then a week off to do dozens of CBTs on aircraft systems. Then a final exam.

The company is leaning to a more self taught program.

You newbies are going to be astonished by the quality of our CBTs.

Does the company provides the study guide ( Shelby's ) for the ATP written exam? And do they give it to you weeks before you start the CTP classes?

Tks.

I think you mean Shepherd Air and no the company does not pay for that study guide - I would be surprised if any airline would pay for Shepherd Air. Everyone uses it though. You can't take the written till you are done with the CTP course which SkyWest does pay for and costs a lot more than the Shepherd Air prep course. You can definitely study that anytime but you don't want to peak too early since the written is after the CTP Sim portion.

Correct, thank you.

Years ago I took the ATP written just before the new rule came into affect, studied 5 days none stop for 10 to 15 hrs a day and passed with an 86 or 96, I can't remember, I will probably get it before the CTP training, go over it so I don't have to cramp it all at once like I did last time.
